Today’s medical brigade, in the Suburbio oeste, provided care for 250 people approximately.
Dr. Virginia Clavijo was in charge of attending patients of various ages who presented epidemiological indicators of flu, cough, fever and diarrhea, but in most cases, elderly patients with hypertension problems were taken care of.
To treat the health conditions of the patients, Dr. Clavijo prescribed antibiotics, anti-flu and antidiarrheal medicines, and pills to control high blood pressure. All the medicines were delivered with no cost, by the Foundation.
Carmen Garcia was one of the beneficiaries, she said that thanks to Alvaro Noboa and the Foundation Cruzada Nueva Humanidad, her son can be treated for his flu, without paying anything and in an expedite way, in contrast to hospitals where she has to wait for hours to be served.
